NEW YORK - June 30, 2014: One of General Motors' most well known personalities, Ed Welburn, has a cameo in the summer blockbuster TRANSFORMERS 4: AGE OF EXTINCTION. GM Design Chief Ed Welburn makes his big screen acting debut in a Transformers 4 scene shot in his office and in the Styling Dome at the GM Design Center. In addition to the GM Design Center, the film makes extensive use of GM facilities as settings, including the Milford Michigan Proving Ground, and the Delta Township Assembly Plant.

For the latest installment, Michael Bay asked the design team at GM to redesign Bumblebee to give him an updated look with a specific focus on making him look more aggressive and muscular.




The Chevrolet vehicles in producer Michael Bay's fourth installment of the iconic film franchise are the: Camaro TF4 Concept (Bumblebee), Corvette Stingray (which converts into Autobot Crosshairs), Trax, and the Sonic RS - which is transformed into a Rally Car.
